Waterfowl Hunting - A Maine Tradition

A sales manager, an engineer, an accountant, a ski coach, a pastor and a biologist paddle their canoes in the dark. It sounds like the start of a bad joke, but it’s actually just a scene from a recent hunting trip with Old Town. In December of 2016, ten Maine sportsmen embarked on a multi-day duck hunting trip in Old Town canoes and kayaks covering Maine’s two distinct, and very different, regions: the interior and the coast. Using a variety of boat types, the group was able to haul all ten hunters, decoys, a photographer and all of his camera gear, and various supplies for everyone. The Discovery 169, Discovery 133 and Discovery Sport 15 did the heavy lifting, transporting camera gear, decoys and anchor systems, and a German Shorthair Pointer named Echo, with ease. Old Town canoes and kayaks, designed specifically with sportsmen in mind, make it easier to transport gear, access rugged and remote locations, and give hunters a safe platform for hunting in nearly any conditions. When the group returned to the boat launch on the afternoon of day two, the results were pretty clear. Mallards, Eiders, Longtail, and a Goldeneye all served as a testament to not only the bounty of Maine’s beautiful waterways, but the versatility of the Old Town canoes and kayaks that make them more accessible.

Stuck in NW Ontario Without a Paddle

There aren't many "fishing firsts" left to achieve. Sure, species records are routinely set and broken, but most of what can be done, has been done. There are few new territories to explore. Enter three intrepid anglers and a unique expedition to fish the remote fly-in waters of Northwest Ontario's Sunset Country in pedal-driven kayaks... finding and catching fish with their feet... a legitimate fishing 'first.' The anglers quickly discovered the Old Town Predator PDL a perfect boat to quickly reach (up to 5.5 mph) and efficiently explore every nuance of the untamed Canadian waters. From precisely positioning off rock islands, reefs, and weed beds, to trolling craggy shorelines and big-fish holding breaks along towering cliffs, the Predator PDL surpassed every criteria for fishability, including reverse pedal motion when they needed it to fight muskies away from cover. Considered by many the fish of 10,000 casts, muskies are notoriously hard to catch... but not so much on NW Ontario waters, where the group caught 13, plus countless big bass. To check out all of the action, watch the full feature video above.

Stuck in NW Ontario… without a Paddle

This past August, three anglers brainstormed an entirely new take on the Canadian fishing trip with the help of Nestor Falls Fly-In Outposts. Old Town Predator PDL fishing kayaks were strapped to the floats of a de Havilland Canada DHC-3 Otter and flown back into the wilds of Northwest Ontario’s Sunset Country. The intrepid anglers were flown in next, blood pumping to tap waters unexplored by kayak anglers. The end result: muskies, big bass, multi-species mayhem, and the adventure of a lifetime. Stuck in NW Ontario… without a paddle… not a problem! Stay Tuned for More! Full-length video to follow on Wednesday, December 21st!
